A unique yet riveting look into one of sports most iconic moments produces the darkest of comedy dramas that owes it's award season success to a director not afraid of risk and remarkable performances from it's leading cast with Alison Janney in particular a certainty for Oscar glory this week!
Maybe a touch of more of the same in this love in later life theme but when you put together a cast that includes Timothy Spall, Celine Imrie, Joanna Lumley and Imelda Staunton you will never leave the movie theater disappointed. It may however struggle box office wise when released in the same week as two strong awards contenders.
Our great hope of Oscar glory Saoirse Ronan is remarkable in Greta Gerwig's semi-biographical tale that includes another strong performance from Oscar nominated Laura Metcalf. Highly recommended!
